Fast food chain McDonald’s is reportedly set to reopen its UK and Ireland branches.
The popular chain was forced to first shut its restaurants – then drive-thrus – across the city during the Covid-19 lockdown.
A re-opening date has been reported in the Farmer’s Journal.
It is reported branches in the UK and Ireland will open in mid-May.
A reporter for the publication tweeted: “Breaking: the @farmersjournal understands McDonalds will reopen its restaurants in the UK and Ireland in mid-May.”
The food chain previously decided to close amid the UK shutdown to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.
In a statement last month, it said: “This is not a decision we are taking lightly, but one made with the well-being and safety of our employees in mind as well as in the best interests of our customers.
